Last week SBNation posted their rankings of the 128 teams in FBS and they were the first ones to somewhat give Kentucky a good outlook on the season. So we got to show them some love and link it on KSR. SBNation places the Cats as a team on the rise with a top 40 finish as the goal. 7-5 would probably make that goal a reality.
Here’s where UK ranked amongst their opponents:
@ 5. Georgia
@ 23. Mississippi State
@ 42. South Carolina
@ 94. Vanderbilt
Syracuse.com had the Cats placed 66th while USA Today disrespected the team with a ranking of 77. I think 50th to begin the year with room to move up into that next tier as a young team matures seems pretty sound. Mississippi State at 23 seems kind of absurd though. What do you think of SBNation’s rankings?
